Those are some pretty healthy chamberings. I'd go with a 7mm-08, .243 etc., but any of the chamberings you listed will be more than enough for whitetail at 125yds. Any of the WSM's would be awesome for your uses, in fact, the 338-300WSM would be really hard to beat for ANY game at 125yds.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
